SENIOR SCOUTING UNIT FLAGS

Over the years, unit flags for Senior Scouting units were issued that are different from those used by Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops.  We record them here.

Air Scout Squadron Flag
It appears that in 1947, all Senior Unit flags where changed to match the Sea Scout Ship flags.  Does this mean that the Air Scout Squadron flags before 1947 were different in some way?  Do not know at this point.

Air Explorer Squadron Flag

Explorer Crew in Troop Flag

1949-58 (similiar to Patrol flags of the time)

Explorer Scout Post Flag
It appears that in 1947, all Senior Unit flags where changed to match the Sea Scout Ship flags.  Does this mean that the Explorer Scout Post flags before 1947 were different in some way?  Do not know at this point.
